Amazon Review

Fans of James Patterson's resourceful black cop Alex Cross will be relieved to find that he's back on familiar territory with Violets Are Blue--and (more importantly) it's one of the best Alex Cross thrillers in many a moon.

The malign criminal genius of Roses Are Red is back and fixing to give Alex a hard time once again. The FBI joins Patterson's dogged cop in a particularly unsettling investigation: two San Francisco joggers have been viciously murdered and are found suspended by their feet, with all the blood drained from their bodies. And when further brutal deaths follow in California and on the east coast, Alex is forced to contemplate the bizarre possibility of modern-day vampires, although his instincts point him to one of the many sinister religious cults that flourish on the West Coast. Aided by Jamilla Hughes, a streetwise young woman detective from San Francisco, Alex finds that he has to crack not one but two impenetrable mysteries to stop further bloodletting.

Readers of Patterson expect the extremely concise, page-turning chapters (116 of them), along with a reluctance to dawdle over details of his hero's personal life, and both characteristics are firmly back in place. If you can resist reading this one in just a few sittings, you deserve some kind of a thriller-reader's medal. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


'If there really were human superheroes, Alex Cross would be at the head of the class...and, with each instalment in the series, Patterson makes sure his superhero gets bigger and better while at the same time becomming more vulnerable.' (New York Times)

'A welcome return to that for which he's best known, the exceptional Alex Cross thrillers... Patterson's stock in trade is the pithy sentence, the snappy chapter and the sort of street-sharp dialogue you can slice your page-turning finger to the bone on... This is murder mystery at its best.' Mirror (Mirror)

'Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... There's no stopping his imagination.' (New York Times Book Review)

'Rattles along like a refurbished caboose, shaking out corpses as it goes.' Daily Mail 14/12/2001 (Daily Mail) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
